Strong points: Fresh local ingredients whenever possible. Both traditional and inventive Italian cuisine. Good wine list at moderate prices. Open late!
The other evening, after another long day of shopping, the Missus and I were not in a hurry to go back home and start cooking!
We decided to visit Solio to sample their Autumn menu, mostly made with Shizuoka Prefecture local products!
To cut a long story short, what de we order?
Pork roulade with mushrooms marinade!
Note that all vegetables, raw or cooked are from Shizuoka Prefecture, most of them organic!
Hiroshima mussles steamed in white wine!
Raw ham and ricotta cheese fritters!!
Solio-style Banya Cauda with organic vegetables grown in Shizuoka Prefecture!
Did I tell you that Solio serves the best rizotto in the Prefecture?
Edamame and smoked cheese baked rizotto!
Note that the luccola are grown organically in Shizuoka, too!
The Missus did not agree with me, but I had to have the dessert!
Almaretto semi-freddo ice cream!
Plum compote and red fruit!
One of these days I will have to come alone just to sample all the desserts! LOL
